Savannah Thomas of the Pryor FFA chapter was one of 76 students selected to receive the academic excellence award.
Only 76 of the 727 state FFA degree recipients were chosen to receive this honor. Recipients were given a medallion on a red and white ribbon to wear over their official FFA dress and recognition for their accomplishment during last week’s State FFA Convention at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City.
Students were selected based on grade point average, class rank and ACT score.
FFA is an integral part of the Agricultural Education Division in Oklahoma’s CareerTech system.
With more than 23,000 members, the Oklahoma FFA Association is the fifth-largest state FFA association. The FFA mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
